variety by many plant nurseries. Yarrow has a prominent position in the history
of medicinal herbs. It is even mentioned in Homer’s Iliad when yarrow is given

mossy and sweetly herbaceous. In skin care, Yarrow is an effective astringent.
It works to tone skin, reduce pore sizes, and can help balance out overly oily
complexions. For these reasons and more, Yarrow Essential Oil is a popular
addition in creams, balms, and serums. It also makes a lovely addition in fresh
spa treatments such as scalp or facial masks.
